Life is so Good

 Hola. I know, last post was in July. 
I have been getting facebook messages from followers asking for an update.
 You can always follow good2go2mexico on facebook at glasspondstudio. 
But I am going to try and get back into blogging.
 I haven't been sure where the blog was going.
 Maybe I will figure it out.
Maybe I just needed a long break.

Well, the guys have been roofing and plastering all summer.
 Everything is roofed in and we have one coat of plaster in the main sala.
We will be doing two coats. That will leave it kind of rough. I like that. 
 The niche above the window has been made especially for a very old wooden train that belonged in Senor's family for a long, long time and below that in front of the window will be the baby grand.

 We don't have the piano in the house yet.
 It is coming from a friend in November and I am really looking forward to playing again. 

Behind the black and yellow painting which in the lower left has a large pink and white trillium painted on sculpted cheesecloth, is a doorway to the bath and what will be the library/guest room.
 Below is the plastered kitchen and the doorway to the game room and more sala photos.




 The arugula self seeded and we have daikon radishes coming up. The birds got everything else Senor planted this year. The cayenne pepper bushes are loaded.
 Senor planted his sweet corn three different times and each time the thrashers ate all the seed, so he devised this little covering and planted again. He discovered a family of thrashers trapped one morning under the chicken wire top, so after pulling it off and helping them get out, he planted again. No luck, they must be staking out the seed and going in at night to get it. He just can't figure out how they are getting inside and under the chicken wire.
 But, now he is out of seed. 

 Still green and lush here, after 31.5 inches of rain this year.
 But fall is here and the hillside trees are changing colors.
 We were given two beautiful old Leclerc weaving looms. Senor developed quite a friendship with a ninety nine year old weaver, and while he does not weave, yet, he has a background in weaving and knows quite a lot about it.
 Someday when we have the right location we will set them up and he and I will both get to work.
Maybe we will make a rug for the floor.
 We were also given her beautiful spinning wheels when she passed away several months ago.
 We also have table looms and an old loom from India and enough yarn to wrap our casa completely.
 We have moved the front door and widened it. I think someday we will actually have a door there.
 And one last photo of the kitchen. The island will be above where you see the bucket. The copper tubing to the stove is under the bucket, safely sleeping until it is put to work.
 We are still around. 
We are still working on the casa.
 I am still working with glass and other assorted things when there is time.
Tomorrow we will head north for the otra lado which is what our Mexican friends call the USA, and plan to fly to Colorado on Friday for a much needed break with our daughter.
Beautiful, beautiful Colorado. 
And on the shopping list?
